Upon installation of Slackware64 13.1 and GSB everything seemed ok. Then I rebooted the system and I got 2 errors: When doing startx I got an error about /usr/libexec/gconf-sanity-check2 exiting with code 256 (This was resolved by replacing GConf 2.26 from SBo with 2.28 GSB.

The other error is that when it starts Gnome the clock applet doesn't show up and I get the error: The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet".

I tried to manually add it to the panel, it gives the same error.

I had a similar problem in SUSE recently, I followed these steps and they fixed the clock applet error. All you need is the missing libs.

Steps to Fix: 1. find the applets file: I have it under vim /usr/lib/bonobo/servers/GNOME_ClockApplet_Factory.server

  1. Then searching for location of the applets execitable file: cat /usr/lib/bonobo/servers/GNOME_ClockApplet_Factory.server | grep location location="/usr/lib/gnome-panel/clock-applet"> location="OAFIID:GNOME_ClockApplet_Factory">

  2. Searching on libs, which it is missing: ldd /usr/lib/gnome-panel/clock-applet | grep "not found" libcroco-0.6.so.3 => not found

  3. And install the missing libs.

I found the fix here. Hope it helps.

I'm using GSB on Slack 13 32 bit and I had the same problem. I used TracerBullet's fix and it turned out to libsoup-gnome. The SlackBuild omits the gnome portion of the lib.

For the startx error type the command as root: chmod 755 /etc/gconf/gconf.xml* and after restart everything will work. Check and the premissions on the /tmp.
